I actually have some rough and finished photos of these bath cabinets I constructed on this boat (Odyssey – hull 703). Boy what a big difference between the finish product and rough. I constructed these cabs of cherry ply and solid stock. I milled the custommoulding stock for the drawer and door frames (mitered with biscuit) out of solid cherry. The recess panels of the doors and drawers were cherry burl veneer (beautiful burl). The rope columns were made from a sub-contractor who made a jig for his lathe that fitted a router. The lathe turned at a super slow speed while the router tracked at a slow speed along the length of the piece mounted in the lathe. End result was a rope column. It was an amazing machine to watch. The layout of the cabinetry was in an “L” shape and the photos show left and right views. I only did the woodworking on this project and the finish department did the staining and top coats. I hope you enjoy the photos. Thanks

Yacht interiors have always fascinated me… super job! I’ve enjoyed your postings. The challenges of a boat interior far exceed any home interior.
